This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

CvC -- let's see what we can do by El Kabong
The annual Coaches vs. Cancer events hosted by Mike & Tish Brey are coming up in a couple weeks. Those of you in the South Bend area should try to attend if you're able -- folks have reported a very good time in past years.
But I was hoping to take the fight to a wider audience this year. The Brey's have raised over $1.6 million for the American Cancer Society, and I'd like to see that number ratcheted up more than a couple notches.
In the blog article is a link to the donation site. If even a quarter of our readership -- a readership I know has been affected by cancer in a lot of ways -- donated $10, we could make a big difference in the donation totals. So if you can spare $10, it would be a great thing.
